I commend you for this good post. It's been the same thing over and over again about how family, friends, and neighbors are enough to keep a person
from turning on their own country. But has anyone actually realized that these American Soldiers wouldn't follow their orders willingly unless
something was at stake? Example: Their Family... If their orders came from someone who said you do this or that, and your family will stay
safe Can you imagine the next thing that their thinking? Oh, well if I don't do it, then my family may be harmed. And bingo, they
just earned a very willing army to move in whatever direction they want.
Also, its to my understanding, that some people (not many) join the military for several reasons surrounding they have no family, find the joy in
harming others for defense - etc. The list goes on, and we all know how some of the military men/women turn out when they come back home, all a little
bit off their normal rocker if you get what I'm saying...
So really, none of us should be judging. We are people after all, and were all bound for mistakes. So think about your family, think about if you were
in their position, and THEN imagine what you would do. Thats the best way to think of it.
